’11 Runs to 10K Rebound,’ Manoa Returns to the Big Leagues

So much for being sent home. Alex Manoa of the Toronto Blue Jays is returning to the big leagues after being sent down to the minors for reconditioning purposes.

Toronto manager John Schneider announced the news of Manoa’s return in an interview with Sportsnet and other local media on Friday.

Manoa is scheduled to start against the Detroit Tigers on April 8.

It was his first big league appearance in nearly a month, since a home game against the Houston Astros on June 6. Manoa struggled to a 1-7 record with a 6.36 ERA in 58 innings pitched in 13 games, and was eventually demoted to the minors.

The demotion was for readjustment purposes. Instead of Triple-A, he was sent to the Rookie League to work on his mechanics at the team’s training facility in Dunedin, Florida.바카라사이트

He struggled in his Rookie League start on June 28, giving up 11 runs in 2 2/3 innings, raising concerns, but rebounded with a strong start in Double-A on July 3, giving up one run on five hits and three walks while striking out 10 in 5 1/3 innings, earning him another call-up.

Toronto manager Schneider told local media that Manoa has made small changes to regain his 2022 form and has met the club’s checklist.

“When we think he’s ready to contribute to the team, we’ll pull the trigger,” he said, signaling that Manoa is ready to compete in the big leagues again.

A first-round pick in the 2019 draft, Manoa has appeared in 64 games over the past three seasons in the big leagues, posting a 26-16 record with a 3.19 ERA. He finished third in the Cy Young Award voting last season.
